Daß der Ostwind Düfte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Daß der Ostwind Düfte
Hauchet in die Lüfte,
Dadurch thut er kund,
Daß du hier gewesen.

[Weil]1 hier Thränen rinnen,
Dadurch wirst du innen,
Wär's dir sonst nicht kund,
Daß ich hier gewesen.

Schönheit oder Liebe,
Ob versteckt sie bliebe?
Düfte thun es und
Thränen kund,
Daß sie hier gewesen.

That thou here hast wandered

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

When the Eastern breezes 
fill the air with fragrance,
'tis that I may know, 
that thou here hast wander'd.

Let the murmur of the
flowing brook remind thee
of the tears I've shed
when I here have wander'd.

Thinkest thou that love or
beauty can be hidden?
They by fragrance and tears are known,
and they come unbidden.


From a Schubert score.
